Sridhar, a rowdy, was arrested along with his associates by the Jnanabharati Nagar police in connection with the case.

The Jnanabharati Nagar police have arrested a gang of three, including a goon who stabbed an autorickshaw driver to death, for staring at them in a bar on January 24.

Police picked up rowdy sheeter Sridhar (37) and his associates, Manjesh (23) and Venkatesh (21).

According to the police, Sridhar, who has several criminal cases pending against him, was consuming liquor at the bar where Raghu, the auto-rickshaw driver was also present.

The trio has been booked for murder and remanded to judicial custody.
